ww2? 37 patt POW jacket


Recommended Posts

This was a cheap buy at W&P a couple of years ago. It looks to be a wartime type but i dont know if it is a postwar Greek jacket. I am not sure if the white spot is original or just added later, my guess is later. it has had plenty of repairs done in its life. I believe the spot is for pows

It is indeed a US manufactured War-Aid BD Blouse for the British - "Blouses, Battledress, OD, WA"...........two labels were fitted....the standard US QM label and the British style Ordnance one......


These blouses were a combination of 37 pattern and wartime economy pattern (eg - fly-fronted but no pocket pleats, etc) and were made in a good quality "melton" woollen serge of a distinct brown-olive shade.....they were very popular and most supplies appear to have arrived in the Italian and Med theatres.....
